So I'm Doing the Arbonne 7 Day Sea Spa Cleanse...

...and am not really loving it.  (But realistically, who LOVES something called a "cleanse" unless you're speaking of showering, right?)

As far as eating, I am simply counting calories and trying to up my intake of fresh fruits and veggies. And no alcohol for 7 days. (*sobbing with fists clenched*) (not really) (well, kinda)

Thankfully I started on Sunday and not on a work day.  Close proximity to a bathroom is a necessity, folks.  I'll just leave it at that.

It looks like sludge.  I'll bite my tongue and not say that it pretty much looks the same leaving the body.

Whoops.  Too late.

(Should I be the newest Arbonne consultant or WHAT?)
So you then mix it with 32 oz. of water and drink it throughout the day.  The taste is nasty. It kinda reminds me of iced tea?  But I don't like tea at all (hot or cold), so I'm not a fan.  This morning though, I mixed some diet cranberry juice in to spice it up a bit.  It's a little more bearable.
But not much.

Wish me luck.

Thanks for this post, I've been wanting to do a "cleanse" and now I want to do it even more! (Sarcasm intended) I'm sure I could force down the nasty, if I could have alcohol, maybe even mix it with alcohol. There's a thought!
Good luck with the rest of your cleanse.

Good Luck! I mean, if you're strong enough to start it, you're already pretty amazing!

7 days of that, really? You are stronger than me!!!

Blech. No thank you.

Amy said...

So this helps you lose weight? I may need to try it. I like iced tea (she says weakly).

If it works you should totally be an Arbonne rep. At least you are honest!

Oh, the image of the drink isn't appealing but I do like the idea of a cleanse. We have a book that supposedly my husband was going to follow that laid out a cleanse, but alas that didn't happen.

Love your last photo! Looks like your really enjoying that stuff. ;) The hubby and I have been talking about doing a cleanse, but we can't ever quite commit to it.

I usually make it about a day and a half before I give up, but then again, I've never really been known for follow-through!

Rebekah said...

Oh. My. Um, what does this do in the end? If I tried it would it make me look like Heidi Klum or something really good like that?

Michele R said...

I could never do it! Except for in prep for a colonoscopy. Anyone age 50 and older (not me yet)? Get it done!

Good Luck on this. I don't think I could do it so more power to ya! Let us know how it works out in the end and if it makes you feel any better.

LoveFeast Table said...

ummm yummm! Based on your expression, it'll be a long week! Good luck with that!

oh friend - i just don't even know what to say?? i mean i am way proud of you, but i think i might have just thrown up in my mouth a little while looking at the pictures :(

stay strong!

Maureen said...

Can't wait to hear what you think of it when it's over and whether it was worth it.

The Joy Berry books arrived! Thanks so much!

Shell said...

Gross! You'll have to let us know if it's worth it!

You can do it! (Just glad it's "you" and not "me"! :) Really, though, I bet you'll feel great after your 7 days are over. I soooo need to do something to lose weight/feel better. I'll have to stay tuned to see how you feel in a week to see if this is an option! (You don't mind being my guinea pig, do ya?)

Yuck yuck... I don't think I could do it . Seriously.

I did some cleanse a few weeks ago. I totally don't remember the name of it which goes to show that only a mom could forget the name of the 6 pills she took each day for a week, but anyway it was not good. It was massive cramping and peeing out of my butt (TMI?). Never again.

Unless of course I'm really bloated and fat ;)

Love your blog, I'm following.

Rebecca said...

Great face in the last picture!!! Good luck!

Casey said...

I just bought the Arbonne Essentials 7 Day Body Cleanse. Not sure if it's the same as the Spa cleanse, but could you tell a difference after you did it? Did you lose any weight? Let me know, I'm anxious to try it, but am nervous after all these comments!

I've done it before; if you mix it with sugar free cool-aid packets it is MUCH more manageable!
